Former Chiefs quarterback Len Dawson will receive the Richard A. Bloch Cancer Survivorship Award Sunday.
It will be part of the 25th Annual “Kansas City Celebration of Life Rally” at the Bloch Cancer Surviors Park at 48th Street and Roanoke Parkway at 1 p.m.
The public event is free and will continue until about 3 p.m. with photos, cake, a prize raffle and tables of more than 30 participating organizations.
Dawson, a Pro Football Hall of Famer, is a 19-year prostate cancer survivor. Coinciding with National Cancer Survivors Day, the award is being bestowed at the oldest and most inclusive cancer survivorship celebration in the United States.
Much deserved, Lenny. Congratulations.
